Sailing around the Americas! TV show needs your help!

Hey guys!
We're a group of young filmmakers that will be sailing around the America's creating a tv show to educate, inspire and empower the youth to help protect our oceans, our planet and our people. And we need your help!
We want to meet up with you along the way! With Sailors to show us the way, musicians to help create the soundtrack, with surfers to show us their favorite waves, with divers to show us beneath and with every day normal people that are fighting to save what is sacred to them.
Check out our campaign and please help if you can - every little bit helps! Share us, like us, and together we'll make this project happen!
Look forward to hearing from you and maybe one episode we'll be coming to you!

Chris Avery

We're also looking for our dear captain and beloved vessel if you know of a good fit!

As will I. I know an artist who might find this fascinating. BTW to the original poster, cool project! Good luck to your success!

I'm in! But our boat is probably too small

(You do know about Matt Rutherford, don't you?)

Film makers & story tellers: Try a walk on the wild side, drag out your foullies! Let's slide out on the lake and see if you can keep up? Hank the jib,taste the fresh, clear, cool, green water . Take a real ride past the park. No cake walk here. Find real solitude.--Dale

Thanks windsaloft, we have indeed! In fact Capt. Mark Schrader was a great mentor to us in the beginning of the project! We are great fans of that project,
Yucatancruiser and Joediver- we'll be sure to let you know when we're in your area and would love to meet up!
